I built a view that simply sums up columns for each record. Why are my results NULL? My query is below and all my columns are set to Data Type: Decimal. I have also tried setting the data type to numeric with the same results.

SELECT        QUOTETRK, OTHERFEE2 + OTHERFEE1 + AOGTRANFEE + PACKFEE + QOTAMT AS QOTTOTAL
FROM            dbo.AS400DATA

If any of the values are null, the result is null.  If you don't want that, then you can wrap each value in an ISNULL(<field>,0)

SELECT        QUOTETRK, ISNULL(OTHERFEE2,0) + ISNULL(OTHERFEE1,0) + ISNULL(AOGTRANFEE,0) + ISNULL(PACKFEE,0) + ISNULL(QOTAMT,0) AS QOTTOTAL
FROM            dbo.AS400DATA
